Can you control the consciousness? Can you keep it with you always? No, it can go at any time, and you have no authority that you can say this is my consciousness and I will hold on to it for such and such a time.

The source of consciousness cannot be an object in consciousness. To know the source is to be the source.

When you realize that you are not the person, but the pure and calm witness, and that fearless awareness is your very being, you are the being. It is the source, the Inexhaustible Possibility.

All experiences will be a means of suffering if one hasn't realized what they are. All experiences are due to memories and are merely movements in consciousness and therefore they cannot last. Happiness and unhappiness come and go.

The Unknown gives birth to the known, yet remains Unknown. The known is infinite, but the Unknown is an infinitude of infinities. Just like a ray of light is never seen un- less intercepted by the specs of dust, so does the Supreme make everything known, itself remaining unknown.

All desires aim at happiness. Their shape and quality depend on the psyche. Where inertia predominates, we find perversions. With energy, passions arise. With lucidity the motive behind the desire is goodwill, compassion, the urge to make happy rather than be happy.

Nature will take its course. It is only to be understood, nothing is to be done. Remember only one thing: that it is this "I Amness" which has remained unchanged at all times, and which pervades the entire universe. It is the highest God as far as this manifestation is concerned.

Desires that destroy their subjects, or objects, or do not subside on satisfaction are self-contradictory and cannot be fulfilled. Only desires motivated by love, goodwill and compassion are beneficial to both the subject and object and can be fully satisfied.

Desiring a state of freedom from desire will not set you free. Nothing can set you free, because you are free. See yourself with desireless clarity, that is all.

In this spiritual hierarchy, from the grossest to the, subtlest, you are the subtlest. How can this be realized? The very base is that you don't know you are, and suddenly the feeling of "I Amness" appears.

The moment it appears you see space, mental space; that subtle, skylike space, stabilize you there. You are that. When you are able to stabilize in that state, you are the space only.

When this space-like identity "I Am" disappears, the space also will disappear, there is no space. When that space-like "I Am" goes into oblivion, that is the eternal state, nirguna, no form, no beingness. Actually, what did happen there? This message "I Am" was no message.

It is a very complicated riddle. You have to discard whatever you know, whatever you have read, and have a firm conviction about That about which nobody knows anything. You can't get any information about That, and about That you must have firm conviction. How difficult it is.

You must be very careful as to what you desire. And as to the people you want to help, they are in their respective worlds for the sake of their desires; there is no way of helping them except through their desires.

There must always be some distance
between yourself and
the phenomena that you perceive.
When you are aware of your true Self
more than you are aware of the world,
then somehow you have smoothly crossed over.
When you are more deeply involved
in your personal self and the world rather than
abiding in your unchanging awareness Self,
you remain in exile from your own true home.
When the mind is established in the Self,
a beautiful vibration is present.
It is like you are insulated against
the impact of worldly commotion, vaccinated
against the intoxicating effects of maya.
Something remains untouched.
Seemingly touched, yet untouched.
Apparently affected, yet unaffectable
—immaculate Being.

When a man looks for experience he becomes the body.
When he looks for knowledge he becomes the mind.
When he looks for God he becomes the Heart.
When he looks for Truth he becomes Nothing.

Know Light Within

Know the Light, your Form becomes Light;
Know the Hidden Form; you that Form become;
Know the Light's Form; you that Light become;
That Light within you to melt, He in love stands.

He is Lord of All

He confers Mukti;
He is Jnana and Mantra;
He is the Father;
He is the Lord of Celestials immortal;
He is the Pure One;
He is the Light that is the Holy Way;
He is the Pasu-Pati (Lord of Jivas)
Whom the devotees in ardour adore.

No Karma, if Thought and Word are Consistent

Through thought, word and deed
Karmas accumulate;
If thought and word consistent stand
Karma bides not;
Thought and word conquering,
They experience Karmas,
And alter their course,
They the great Jnanis are.

Let Truth be revealed inside your stillness.
Personal determination,
knowledge or force alone
will not produce the desired result
of awakening to the Real.
Simply keep quiet and open to Grace.
Invite Her in with all your heart.
She listens and responds to your heart’s plea.

When we see a blooming flower, swaying in the wind, spreading fragrance, we fail to recognise that it represents the last stage of the transition of the flower bud from darkness into light. Inside the flower bud, there was darkness. From that darkness, it slowly bloomed into the light. Similarly, this is our journey of blossoming from the darkness of lower emotions into the light of pure love. It is only when we reach that final destination that we experience real celebration and joy.

"Nevertheless, the conclusion must be reached that He is pure intelligence and His consciousness is absolute and transcendental. Such is the consciousness-intelligence in purity, Absolute Being, the One Queen, Parameswari (Transcendental Goddess) overwhelming the three states and hence called Tripura. Though She is undivided whole the universe manifests in all its variety in Her, being reflected as it were, in a self-luminous mirror. The reflection cannot be apart from the mirror and is therefore one with it. Such being the case, there cannot be difference in degrees (e.g., Siva, or Vishnu being superior to each other). Bodies are mere conceptions in the lower order of beings and they are not to the point in the case of God.

Therefore, be wise, and worship the one pure, unblemished Transcendence.

Don't study spirituality.
Don't strain to make things happen.

Just keep dissolving inside the silence of your own heart.

That being so, one moves effortlessly from death to eternal life.

ANNAMALAI SWAMI – FINAL TALKS

DOERSHIP

Thoughts will come as long as the potential for them is inside you. Good thoughts, bad thoughts, they will all keep coming.
There is nothing you can do about this flow, but at the same time, this flow of thoughts need not be a problem.

Be the Self, be the peace that is your real nature, and it will not matter what comes up. Walk, eat, drink, sleep, meditate, but never think that you are the one who is doing these things. The thought that you are doing something is the thought that is poisoning your life.

Because once you think that you are doing something, you will start to think that you need to be doing something else to put yourself in a better situation. You don't have to do anything to experience the nectar of the Self. All you need to do is drop the idea that you are doing anything at all.

Disciple: But why shouldn't we worship buddhas and bodhisattvas?

Bodhidharma: Devils and demons possess the power of manifestation. They can create the appearance of bodhisattvas in all sorts of guises. But they're false. None of them are buddhas. The buddha is your own mind. Don't misdirect your worship.
